Documenta 14 – The Parliament of Bodies – Public Programs:
The Apatride Society of the Political Others: Indigenous Knowledge 1:
On Violent Waters.
A Discussion on Borders and Migration
with Dimitris Parsanoglou, Maria Iorio, and Raphaël Cuomo
_Screening, discussion
_November 30, 7 pm
_Parko Eleftherias, Athens Municipality Arts Center, Athens, GR

In contemporary discussions of European borders, the sea stands as a silent and invisible yet violent medium that accentuates the tragic or heroic border crossings of migrants and refugees. Although it cannot be grasped, the sea becomes a dynamic environment that responds to the violent assaults of border crossings and surveillance technologies. Two different narratives are conflated during this event in order to explore the different kinds of knowledge of the techno-natural echoes of violence in Mediterranean borderline waters and shores.

Coordinated by Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz, Nelli Kambouri
and Margarita Tsomou

Moving Images, Mobile Subjects
_A series of screenings and talks
_13 - 14 May 2016
_Rote Fabrik, Zurich, CH

The images of intercepted boats and anonymous bodies populate the daily press, and have become almost interchangeable from one day to another. They participate in the reproduction of an imaginary of invasion that in turn justifies the deployment by states of exceptional means to combat it. Images and images practices may also be embedded in the very practices of border control […]. However artists and filmmakers have long sought to produce alternative representations of migration, and to intervene directly in the field of the politics of migration through their aesthetic practice. Their image practices and objects may intervene in multiple ways within the field of the politics of migration: from the very presence of their bodies and the relations they establish during the production of images, to the production of images that serve as evidence of migrants’ rights violations. The aesthetic field that is an intrinsic part of the migration regime is thus an embattled terrain, but also an ambivalent one, in which images circulate and are used in different and at times antithetical ways, and thus demand careful positioning by aesthetic practitioners. A series of films and presentations that exemplify modes of intervention in the aesthetic and political field are screened and discussed amongst aesthetic practitioners, theorists and activists. They reflect collectively on the role of aesthetic practices within the currents deadly migration regime and how they can be mobilized to contest it.

What The Tortoise Murmurs To Achilles
On Laziness, Economy of Time, and Productivity
_Group Exhibition
_18 March - 8 May 2016
_Opening March 17th, 6pm
_SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin, D

with Nidaa Badwan, Atef Berredjem, Raphaël Cuomo & Maria Iorio (+ Videobase), Cevdet Erek, Abrie Fourie, Katia Kameli, Brandon Labelle, Abraham Onoriode Oghobase, Junebum Park, Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger

curated by Elena Agudio, Saskia Köbschall & Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung

The exhibition What The Tortoise Murmurs To Achilles. On Laziness, Economy of Time and Productivity is a bid to investigate alternative understandings and perceptions of time from a pluricultural and decolonial perspective by digging into the politics of time and of its negotiations in geopolitical power relations. This project cannot afford the luxury to stand as a simple praise of idleness or a superficial claim on the right to be lazy; rather, the exhibition will be a conceptual and physical space for reflections on chronopolitics and power mechanisms that frame certain rhetorics of time economy. That is to say, the exhibition will take its cue from the assumed and connotated ‘slow’ and ‘disruptive’ rhythm associated with “Southern” attitudes as a position of resistance to the purported industrious nature of The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism (Max Weber).

Europe. The Future of History
_Collective exhibition
_12 June – 06 September 2015
_Opening 11 June, 7 p.m.
_Kunsthaus Zürich, CH

What image represents Europe? The fall of the Berlin Wall, perhaps, and the unification of Eastern and Western Europe after four decades of division along ideological lines? The reconstruction and the economic miracle following the disaster of the Second World War? Universal human rights and a political consensus among Europeans based on freedom and democracy? Or football championships and the Eurovision Song Contest? Not since Antiquity has a single image stood for Europe, and any that purports to do so can only be a fragment. […] In 1924 Ernst Ludwig Kirchner posed the question: ‘A unified Europe would be the end of wars and it will come, but when?’ This exhibition sets out to chart the various forms in which society’s ongoing desire for a peaceful Europe has been depicted through the history of ideas. It takes in themes such as the delineation and dissolution of frontiers, landscape as a factor in the construction of identity, the development of democracy, labour and mobility.

Logica del passaggio
_Solo exhibition
_6 May – 7 June 2015
_Opening 5 May 2015, 12:00
_Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice, IT



Logica del passaggio is curated by Simone Frangi
Part of the installation, the new film Appunti del passaggio features a voice performance by Alessandra Eramo and sound by Gilles Aubry.
A reader including related texts by Simone Frangi and Cynthia Fornage is published by Archive Books, Berlin

In Logica del passaggio, Maria Iorio & Raphaël Cuomo analyse the phenomenon of Italian “economic" migration to Switzerland in the Sixties, which was characterized by immigrant workers being restricted to the sphere of production, by discrimination and xenophobia, and by the use of “health risks” as a strategy to control emigration and the legality of border crossings. Through a film and a spatial installation, Maria Iorio & Raphaël Cuomo reread and write up this chapter of history without ever slipping into a mere documentary, working instead to reveal the replicable structure and logic behind it.
Logica del passaggio thus emphasizes the discrepancy between official, institutional portrayals of the phenomenon of migration and the subjective views of the migrants, trying to construct a ‘history from below’.

Before the Revolution. Notes on Italian Militant Cinema
with Annamaria Licciardello
_Talk, screening, discussion
_Saturday 14 June, 19:00

The outbreak of the student movement in 1968 started a ten-year period of social and political confrontation in Italy that had no equal in the rest of Europe. All sectors of society and all aspects of personal life underwent attempts to change, criticise and revolt. How to represent this multi-faceted movement? How to communicate and disseminate the workers’ struggles, the new forms of organisations, the urgency of revolution? Whose voice should finally be heard? The need for counter information on one hand and for self-representation on the other led to the proliferation of groups and experiences of the, so-called, militant cinema. Even if few traces have remained of it in comparison to the well-known American or French militant cinema, in the late 60s and 70s, it had some (non-commercial) distribution and a place in the theoretical and critical debate. Strongly rooted in that specific historical moment, in the revolutionary momentum and its subsequent failure, Italian militant cinema fell into obscurity in the following decades. These notes try to sketch a reconstruction of this unwritten page of the history of the moving image in Italy.

Sabine Bitter / Helmut Weber, Giuseppe Ferrara, Maria Iorio / Raphaël Cuomo, Stefano Montesi, Rena Rädle / Vladan Jeremic, Klaus Schafler, Sandra Schäfer, Alexander Schellow, Joel Sternfeld, Tobias Zielony

Curatorial team: Jochen Becker, Carlo Cellamare, Christian Hanussek, Antonella Perin, Susanna Perin mit Alessandro Lanzetta. In Kooperation mit metroZones – Center for Urban Affairs (Berlin), SMU-research (Rom/Aarau)

Self Made Urbanism Rome is an exhibition exploring the Via Casilina, an arterial road in Rome running south-east from the central Porta Maggiore to the city’s borders and beyond. The area fascinated Romantic artists who viewed this urban-rural landscape as complementing the historical and cultural densification with classical temples and inner city palazzi. The artists taking part in the S.M.U.R. project apply contemporary methods to investigate this historical terrain. In this process, they are continuing art history in a new way. In an exchange with scholars and city activists, they explore the self-built and self-organised city expanding here over the last hundred years.

Descriptions de descriptions
_Screenings
_2-8 July 2013
_Marseille, F

Descriptions de descriptions is the title of a collection of articles written by Pier Paolo Pasolini, which was posthumously published in 1979. It brings together critical prose devoted to films and books, both classics and works by his peers and fellow writers. Under this generic title, we propose to assemble, as exemplified by Pasolini’s location–based films presented in this section, works that stage their own gaze, placing at the very heart of the work the work itself.

_4 July 2013, 7pm

Continuing its event series A Short Summer, waterside contemporary presents Coming to light, a screening programme of works by Raphaël Cuomo and Maria Iorio, and Mathieu K. Abonnenc.

The works consider colonial history of European nations and its effect on cultural identity and global context of the present day. While Cuomo and Iorio’s Sudeuropa investigates the economies of visibility in relation to past and present mobility regimes over the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Abonnenc’s An Italian Film is a journey into the turbulent history of copper export from Congo during the European industrialization age.

A symposium with artists Sophie Ernst, Anna Okrasko and Maria Iorio & Raphaël Cuomo. Moderated by Anke Bangma.

Much of the current political debate about culture and society revolves around the question who does and who does not belong 'here'. Underlying this debate is a logic that assumes that there is a 'Dutch' space characterized by 'Dutchness', a 'Moroccan' space characterized by 'Moroccanness', etc. The spatial image that thus emerges is that of a discontinuous, ruptured landscape, where cultures are envisioned to occupy their own separate territories. This is the legacy of a 19th century worldview that also has its echoes in the ethnographic museum and its tradition of regional displays. 

Migration and mobility have challenged this geography of autonomous cultures located in distinct, often national territories. We need new spatial imaginaries to come to a better understanding of the dynamics of culture, of the multiple lifeworlds that intersect within specific places, and of the ways in which communities take shape and lay claims to space within an interconnected world. Anthropologists, cultural theorists and geographers have therefore increasingly focused on mobility. So too have artists who have developed the visual language to make these issues tangible.

This symposium is therefore as much about topical questions about place and the spatialisation of belonging, as it is about artistic imagination.

This symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition Imagined Places, with work by Claudia Cristovão, Bouchra Khalili, Adrian Paci, Ho-Yeol Ryu and Zineb Sedira (on view until April 14, 2013).
